Best Snowbird Destinations in the U.S.
Desert Hot Springs, CA
Part of Greater Palm Springs, Desert Hot Springs is a Southern California snowbird destination. Its namesake springs bubble up from an underground aquifer, offering pure relaxation. Though other cities in the region are known for excitement, Desert Hot Springs is about unwinding. While visiting, be sure to get a massage, partake in meditation, and soak up the sun, perhaps with a game of golf at The Sands RV & Golf Resort.
In the heart of Texas Hill Country is Fredericksburg, a small town with a distinct German influence. The downtown Main Street, known by its German name of Hauptstrasse, is lined with bakeries, boutiques, and museums. Be sure to visit the Pioneer Museum and the National Museum of the Pacific War.
Two resorts are within day trip distance of Fredericksburg. Blazing Star RV Resort, located in San Antonio, offers family-friendly accommodations near SeaWorld San Antonio. Further east in New Braunfels is Hill Country Cottage and RV Resort. More German influence can be found in New Braunfels, especially in the Gruene Historic District and at Schlitterbahn Waterpark.
St. Petersburg, FL
A blend of old and new, St. Petersburg boasts classic Florida charm and sunny weather. The downtown area is bursting with cute eateries, while the waterfront parks are destinations for art. Some great spots to visit include the Dali Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Mahaffey Theater.
A couple of Sun RV Resorts are located just a few miles away from St. Petersburg. Rainbow Village of Largo features numerous grassy RV sites and outdoor activities like shuffleboard and pétanque.
